Many HR spikes throughout the night no matter the pressure

Many HR spikes throughout the night no matter the pressure
Hello,

I am pretty sure this is not normal (please correct me if I am wrong), but I do not think my HR should be spiking so many times throughout the night.


At first I thought these HR spikes were misreadings from my oximeter (using the Wellue O2Ring), but I see that there are usually matching movement spikes and O2 drops. In my screenshots, you can see that no matter what pressure settings I have tried, there are these spikes in HR and movement. In all the screenshots, you can see that my pressure has not been maxing out, so I don't think more pressure is what I need.

I believe this is probably disrupting my sleep.

Thoughts? Any advice is greatly appreciated

I can’t see your flow limits chart but I would bet they are high. We need to see flow limits and more of the left column. You need to eliminate the calendar so we can see the left column. 

I can not see if you have EPR set. 

Recommendations are to set the EPR full time with EPR 3.

Here are MUCH better (and bigger) screenshots of different nights with different pressures.

I usually have EPR set to 2 or 1

I do have some flow limitations, but they are small and acceptable?
